Top 5 Winter 2016 Beauty Essentials

Luxury travel blogger shares her Top 5 Winter 2016 Beauty Essentials featuring Molton Brown, Aromatherapy Associates, Malin+Goetz and more.


Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Refining Moisture Complex 2x75ml plus 30ml bonus travel size

I was on the lookout for a new moisturiser and asked my lovely Twitter followers for a suggestion. More than 20 mentioned Elizabeth Arden, a brand we are all familiar with, but swore by this particular cream. I did a little research and found this incredible set, which comes with 2 full size jars and a handy travel sized tube. I have been using this cream since before Christmas and it is rich, thick and actually lovely. You feel the difference immediately – and works for day and night. Buy this set on Amazon for £32.51 (inc. Prime Delivery)


Dior Capture Totale DreamSkin, 30ml

Or absolute magic. 90% of my make up is from Dior and has been for over 5 years and I have never regretted a purchase. I recently tried a sample and couldn’t quite believe the impact – people actually commented and said I had a ‘glow’. I have now been using this beauty since early January and it really is magic. It does perfect your skin and it makes it feel illuminated and super soft. A winner. Buy it from John Lewis for £79.


Molton Brown Lipsaver

I was introduced to a version of this product 15 years ago onboard my first ever British Airways Club World flight from Toronto (back then, Molton Brown did the amenity kits). I will never forget it as my lips had not reacted well to my first Canadian business trip and I was actually in pain. By the time I landed in London, they were as good as new. Every year since, almost religiously, I buy one of these (they last for a year), and take it with me everywhere – perfect for the cold (including skiing) and all warmer trips. You will not regret this buy. Buy it from Molton Brown for £12.


Malin+Goetz Rum Body Wash 473 ml

Did you know that Malin+Goetz was actually American? I only discovered this little bit of information on a recent trip – I always thought it was Nordic (or German!), as I first came across this brand at a hotel in Helsinki. I have been trying some of their products on and off and this shower gel is one of our current household favourites. I am trying their shampoos next month and will report back. I love the smell and actually how a little goes a long way. Buy it from Liberty London for £28 (the extra large version).


Aromatherapy Associates Wash 300ml

This is actually both a hand wash and a body wash, but at home we use it as a hand wash – the smell reminds me of The Kensington Hotel in London, where you can find it everywhere. It is lovely and smells amazing. Buy it from Aromatherapy Associates for £20.


If you get any of these products, do let me know your thoughts. And what have you been buying? Let me know as I would love to try more products.
